Description of problem:
I was dialing my ISP, metconnect. After several busy signals and redials I was
about to change the number, so I tried to abort. After several attempts I closed
the program, but I heard my modem connect and it connected successfully to the
internet while it was closed. I got the automatic bug report then; a paste of
which is bellow.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.dial ISP
2.redial, and redial again and decide to call it off for now, so with difficulty
close "network device controll."
3. connection succeeds with network device control (apparantly, but apparantly
not really) closed.
4. crash occurs, without taking down ppp connection.    

Actual Results:  crash occurs, but without affecting successful ppp connection
to dialup ISP.

Expected Results:  same except no crash.

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2003-04-15 08:16:41 UTC
very strange... did you kill the GUI Window of redhat-control-network?

Comment 2 Joshua Lee 2003-04-15 12:10:08 UTC
No, I didn't use kill. I clicked on the x box in the window corner.

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2003-04-15 12:21:39 UTC
then, there is not much I can do about it, other than providing a
"Cancel"-Button for the Activation Dialog

Comment 4 Joshua Lee 2003-04-15 23:47:10 UTC
That sounds like a bit of a hack, but if it works maybe it'd be a good idea.
Really the ideal behavior would be to abort the dialing when the window is
closed. wvdial if it recieves a signal does this, for example.

Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2003-04-16 08:12:39 UTC
this is my plan... as soon as the dialog is killed or cancel pressed, then kill
-15 for the dialing process..

Comment 6 Joshua Lee 2003-04-16 16:33:20 UTC
That sounds good. Thanks for your help.

Comment 7 Harald Hoyer 2003-04-16 16:36:16 UTC
thx for your suggestions... that was just the thing I implemented today :)
